The Polar Bear Express

ADVENTURE CANADA CRUISE

Refurbished in 2014, the Ocean Endeavour accommodates just 198 passengers, and is the perfect ship for expeditions as she can access remote areas of wilderness and isolated communities with fascinating cultures. Sailing aboard a small ship doesn’t mean you miss out on facilities. Boasting a pool, hot tub, and sauna, as well as a day spa and fitness centre, the Ocean Endeavour has everything you need to relax between ports.
